A literary blog of connection & coincidence;

Valentine from his second cousin "Lois Josephine" (b 1929)
was sent sometime in the late 1930s or early 1940s.
Earl's full name was "Earl James Lindsey."
I never knew anyone to call him "James" or "Jimmie."
And as far as I know, Lois was always called "Josie."
I guess the moral to this story is:
feel free to address and sign
your Valentines however you want!
